before the beginning of the World Wide Web, I became intrigued by the
power of the Internet. Working as a scientific project manager, I was
able to make early use of the technology (FTP, e-mail, etc.). At the
beginning of the Web I became fascinated with its potential. I joined
a small group of like-minded folks to explore the technology, first
coding web pages by hand then using the crude HTML editing programs
then available. In addition to web site design and development, I administered
both Unix servers and NT-based servers. This group became the Internet
Services Division at Visualogic, Inc. I worked with this group for four
years, becoming the manager of the division, before leaving to establish
my own business, Skip Echert Web Associates, in 1999.
My interest in the web is not just from a technical standpoint, but
from a business standpoint as well. In addition to scientific degrees,
I have a Masters Degree in Business Administration (MBA) from Pepperdine
University. Combining this formal education with my practical business
experience gives me an excellent understanding of the ways in which
the Web can be put to use.
Creating a site that then can be viewed by people around the world,
still gives me a huge charge. Helping people make their sites work much
better provides a great feeling of accomplishment.
Life before the Web - I worked as a research scientist, managing other
scientists and engineers and participating in oceanographic projects.
I was privileged to have been involved in a variety of adventures, accompanied
by some great individuals. These projects included:
- Dozens of trips to the Bering, Chukchi and Beaufort Seas measuring
sea ice and ocean parameters. I spent a total of about 5 months on
camps established on drifting pack ice in the Arctic Ocean.
- Searching for (and finding) a Spanish galleon in over 3000 m of
- Diving to install and recover oceanographic instruments in the near
shore off North Carolina.
Writing Experience - I have written hundreds of scientific reports
for industry and government and have authored or co-authored 7 articles
in refereed journals, 20 papers published in conference proceedings,
and have presented papers at over a dozen scientific conferences.
